A Ph.D. scientist by day and performer by night, Jesse Cortez has started to make his mark on the San Francisco performing scene. A proud alumni of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, he started competing in the local cabaret scene and in his first year became Runner-up for "Best Pop Cabaret" and won "Best Showtunes Cabaret" at Martuni's.

These experiences only fueled the fire that he had for performing and he quickly began working at many local theater companies, such as Broadway by the Bay, New Conservatory Theater, Thrillpeddlers, and Ray of Light. He is just so thrilled to be able to live out his dream of performing on stage to whoever wants to lend an ear or two. :)

So thanks for stopping by! Check out my list of upcoming shows, see my resume and social media on the "About" page, watch videos of my performances on my "Media" page, and feel free to contact me for events!
